Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields? – Henry Ford – click to tweet this quote
Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species, which is widely popular all over the world. This is because hemp is a fast-growing plant and can be a more eco-friendly option to make paper, plastics, clothing and more. What some people don’t know is that hemp is also great to include in your diet. Hemp is high in fibre, high in omega fatty acids and is great for muscle repair. It is high in minerals and can assist in the repair of our DNA structure. Basically, it is pretty amazing for our health. I have personally used hemp products from hempfactory.com.au for a few months now and I have noticed a significant difference in myself. I have noticed fewer stomach upsets and clearer skin. I have incorporated hemp into my daily routine in a few different ways, and here are some of those ways that you can include hemp into your own life.
Pop it in your smoothie!
Hemp oil, hemp hearts or hemp protein can be easily blended into your morning smoothie. I personally enjoy adding a heaped teaspoon of the protein into my morning drink and it hardly affects the taste. The protein can also be blended with vegan milk to make a great after-gym treat or can be used to make plant-based brownies.
Use as a salad dressing
Yum, yum, bubble gum! Instead of using cheap and crappy canola oil, you can use hemp oil to dress your salads. It will give your salad beautiful nutty flavour and is great to mix with some sea salt and pepper.
Make hemp milk
Yup, you heard me. You can make your very own vegan milk out of the hemp hearts. All you have to do is blend them with filtered water, add some dates and a pinch of sea salt and you have yourself the perfect base to make your smoothies with.
